Short personal pitch
I would like to continue representing both the interests of Hyperledger Indy, Aries and Ursa as well as the various working groups I’ve been privileged to participate in. We have a vibrant community that has interest in many areas. As a TSC member, I seek to preserve the autonomy and authority of each project and their volunteers while also facilitating as much collaboration and cross project participation as we can, building towards the strongest possible brand and a more cohesive, open community. I believe in the power of ledgers as transformative to technology and society (public, permissionless, permissioned and private), and continue efforts building bridges in the distributed ledger and identity spaces, and inviting others who are doing innovative work to make our community the center of their open source development efforts.
